Beginning of musical path
I start create music since 1996. That time I was 18 years old, just started to live alone in city center of Osaka, Japan.
Almost same time my brother’s band is finished. He was playing bass in experimental rock band. Then he invite me to start electric music unit together. We ware very excited to create music together.
My brother had digital sequencer, He recommend me to buy digital sampler. then we have something to start create music. In 1996, create music by computer is not so popular as now.
Digital sampler was my first music instruments I got. After soon, I bought Macintosh computer to make more advanced composition.
Tape Collage Unit
We ware searching our way of making music, soon after we found our original way of art expression. We start to make electro beats music combine with Osaka style sense of black.
We had few rules for this unit. One of it is anti copy right policy, we use only sample which others can recognize what is the source of sample. We use whole phrase of samples from other famous commercial song or TV show to combine together to create totally different music.
Second rule was do not program or play any melody or rhythm. We just use sound samples from others. We used computer but we create music by method of tape collage.
We made many songs and send it to music label to release songs. But of cause none of them accept our music. They don’t like that anti copyright policy.
Until now, no body listen except few people.
Now it is shared to public. Probably you wouldn’t understand if you don’t speak Japanese. Hope you enjoy it.
Name of unit is “SNBOKU Komyunity”. We took name from local classified free magazine in the area we grew up.
Since 1999, I was more focused to travel, stop create music with my brother.
Instead of it, I bought laptop computer to compose music while I travel. I bought highest quality Macintosh laptop in that time. It cost almost $4000 USD. Hoooo, expensive…
These are songs I made on computer. That time my musician name was “La Spiral Dimensionz?”. I was making psychedelic electric music. Between 2003 to 2010.
After that period, I got Handpan, Start to play live music and no more composing with computer.
This is one of my recording, I play two Handpan together in same time.
Combine together live and computer edit
Since 2015, I start compose together with recording live sound of music instruments, edit with computer at same time.
songs are deeply combine live and programming. I want to continue this direction until I don’t want to do anymore.
